A few weeks ago I had seen the trailer of the movie Before I Fall and it looked good. It said it's based on a book so I decided to get the audiobook from Overdrive. The book is written by Lauren Oliver. The audiobook came available too soon though because I can't see the movie for a little while. Big Warning: you will cry and laugh. Big Warning 2: there is a shocking part, and an abrupt ending. Before I begin the summary, I should say I almost didn't like the book. The girl was a snob and a follower. She didn't question anything until she died. But later on the book did get good and I did cry a little bit. Before I Fall is about a teenage girl named Samantha Kingston. She dies in a car wreck with her friends who are drunk. Then she wakes up in her bed and it's the same day. She calls it Death Groundhog Day. She relives the day until she finds out what cause the crash. The book is also like the movie Donnie Darko. I would have written the end differently. Now I'm reading City of Lost Souls by Cassandra Clare. It's the fifth book of the Mortal Instruments book series.

@sol_cee The first one didn't do good at the theaters so they didn't make a sequel. People fussed saying it wasn't like the book. They did make it into a tv show, but I didn't like the first season so I haven't seen the second season.

The premise sounds good I am not sure it is my cup of tea but maybe.
